Hi Whitt, that was us! The language is Greek (Vassilis came from Greece to the US in his mid-twenties to study at University of Maryland). He wrote that we are together for two years now and we're leaving soon to start a new adventure in Seattle, where he will take a new job. We decided to really explore the region before we leave. He also wrote about how much we loved the yurt, and especially the food. We spend a lot of time in DC restaurants and your food is some of the best we've had!
I think that's the gist of it. The fun part was figuring out which Greek characters to use for "Whitt" and "yurt." If I remember correctly the underlined word is Whitt. Hope you had a great holiday!!
